REIGNING MUNSTER SCHOOLS Senior Cup champions Presentation Brothers College will face Castletroy College in the first round this season’s edition of the tournament.

PBC bridged a seven-year gap to lift the title last season thanks to a convincing final win over Glenstal Abbey.

Last season’s runners-up, who have never won the top prize, will face Rockwell in round one, though the Cashel school will undoubtedly have revenge in mind after they suffered an 18 – 0 defeat as Glenstal marched in to last season’s semi-finals.

The draw doubles up for for the Junior Cup competition too, and holders of that crown Christian Brothers College will meet either Ardscoil Ris or a battle-hardened qualifier first up.  In the Senior Cup though, CBC are certain to face Ardscoil Ris.

Bandon Grammar’s clash with St Munchin’s is the other confirmed fixture with Crescent College waiting to see who comes through from St Clement’s v CPB.

That qualifying match will take place next Tuesday with a venue yet to be confirmed.

The losing team in the Junior Cup clash of St Clement’s and CPB will take on Ardscoil Ris for the right to enter the first round proper.
